Dogs descended on a historic house for the fourth Essex Dog Day.

Thousands of visitors visited Georgian estate Crix in Hatfield Peverel on Sunday for the event, which has raised more than £150,000 over the years for local charities, including PARC (Play and Resource Centre) for disabled children in Great Notley and Safer Places, which supports domestic abuse victims.

This year, 407 canines broke a world record for the most dogs wearing a bandana.

The previous record stood at 200 dogs and was set by the Humane Society of Harford County, Maryland, last year.

Competitions included waggiest tail, best six legs and best pedigree, demonstrations by The Essex Gun Dog and Obedience School, David Seamark and his sheepdog and renowned falconer Jemima Parry Jones.

All proceeds went to The Essex Community Fund, which supports local charities.
